Port of Auckland is one of New Zealand’s largest ports, located in Auckland City on the Waitemata Harbour. The port has three main terminals: the North Shore Terminal, the Downtown Ferry Terminal and the Princes Wharf Container Terminal.
Auckland’s location on the North Island coastline means it is only 80 kilometres to many major cities in Asia and Australia, which makes it an ideal location for international shipping lines. The port currently handles 2.6 million containers per year but is due to increase capacity by 50 percent over the next decade to handle 5 million containers per year.
Freight forwarders are companies that specialize in shipping and international trade. If your goods are being shipped directly from China to New Zealand, then this isn’t an issue since customs clearance is taken care of at the airport or port of entry in Auckland.
